CENTER POINT -- A joint investigation led to officials serving a search warrant at a Center Point residence and the arrest of three residents on various drug related charges.

Information obtained by the Clay County Sheriff's Department and Owen County Sheriff's Department helped officials obtain a search warrant for a home located at 2369 East Ashboro Road.

According to officials, Randy Glen Jackson, 53, Samuel Branneman, 22, and Donna May-Lee, 43, live at the home with a fourth unidentified person and a small child.

When the warrant was executed Tuesday, officials reported Branneman and May-Lee were at home with the child and a third unidentified adult when undisclosed amounts of methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia were discovered.

A reported stolen 4-wheeler was also found at the home.

Officials said there was also evidence the two adults had allegedly been in possession and used marijuana in the presence of the child.

The two adults were taken into custody and booked into the Clay County Justice Center, while Child Protective Services were contacted to ensure the child was properly cared for.

The third adult was released from the scene, but was issued a summons to appear in court at a later date.

Using information gathered during the search warrant, officials began to look for Jackson while the other two suspects were being processed through the legal system.

Charged with maintaining a common nuisance and neglect of a dependant, Branneman remains incarcerated on a $7,000 cash bond (with 10 percent allowed) while awaiting formal arraignment per the court calendar.

May-Lee was booked on preliminary charges of maintaining a common nuisance, neglect of a dependant, possession of marijuana and possession of methamphetamine. She was given a $7,000 cash bond (with 10 percent allowed).

On Wednesday, Jackson showed up at the CCJC to bond May-Lee out. He was taken into custody in the lobby without further incident.

Jackson was booked on preliminary charges of maintaining common nuisance, neglect of dependant, possession of marijuana, possession of methamphetamine and possession of paraphernalia. His bond was set at $7,000 (no 10 percent allowed) and he is currently awaiting formal court proceedings per the court calendar.

May-Lee bonded out later Wednesday to await formal arraignment per the court calendar.

According to the Clay County Sheriff's Department further details would not be released because the matter remains under investigation and there is a potential for further arrests.

"When the warrant was executed Tuesday".

What was the method of execution, hanging, firing squad, lethal injection? Was the warrant provided with a blindfold?
